Hickman suffers first loss of season at Rockhurst

Friday, October 19, 2012 | 10:16 p.m. CDT

The Hickman football team could not complete a perfect regular season.

Hickman entered Friday night's road game against Rockhurst High School with a 7-0 record, but suffered a 34-7 loss to the Hawklets. 

Rockhurst took control from the opening snap and had a 20-0 lead heading into half time.

The Kewpies didn't get their first offensive points until it was too late. With just over five minutes left in the game, and trailing by 27 points, Hickman sophomore running back Marshall Willingham punched in a short touchdown run to avoid a shutout.

Despite the loss, Hickman is still in line to have the No. 2 seed for the upcoming district playoffs. With Rock Bridge's victory over Jefferson City on Friday, the Bruins will be seeded No. 3.

If both Hickman and Rock Bridge make it passed the first round, a rematch of the cross-town rivalry could be in store.

The district playoffs begin Oct. 26.
